Twelve Years Driven / Press

“Twelve Years Driven is a alt/metal band from Houston, TX. A journey 12 years in the making brought together Adam Simmons, Larry Gilstrap, Mark Powell, Mark Sebren & Robert Rice to give Texas and the world of metal music something they haven't seen or heard since the early days of Pantera. A quick, hard-hitting 3 song EP highlights everything that is right about this band. A distinct, aggressive lead vocal by Robert Rice, thumping, ground shaking percussion brought by Mark Sebren on drums and Mark Powell on bass, all tied up nice and nasty by Adam Simmons and Larry Gilstrap sharing guitar duty, every song on this EP is a highlight that stands on it's own merit and pays homage to some of the greatest metal bands of all-time. Stop by the band's Reverbnation page and see for yourself why Twelve Years Driven is poised to make their mark on the music scene. They'll leave your ears throbbing and you'll thank them every second of this epic 3 song EP.”

Fierce Allegiance - Reverb Nation Artist

"For their very first show ever, the results were quite impressive. Their playing was solid and tight, you could tell how much time these guys must have spent in practice; their stage presence reflects experience"..."The entire thing seemed so professionally produced and very well executed"..."Seriously, I did not expect the show that I saw"..."My expectations were not terribly high. What we got, though, was a sonic extravaganza of epic proportion, a well-executed and high-powered exhibition of musicianship that will be talked about for a long time to come"..."The enthusiasm on and off that stage never wavered, they captured the crowd from the opening guitar licks and never let us go. This show was so well played that, had it played instead at the Toyota Center in front of 17,000 people, it would have played exactly the same - and been just as successful".
